GREAT "fuck you" letter!

1) "modicums of punctuality ..not!)." Was this (modicums {sic} of punctuality) his phrase? If so, enclose it in quotes, note the erroneous pluralization, and add a third period -- no spaces -- after the close quote after punctuality.

"modicums {sic} of punctuality"...not!). NOTE: Where I use {} here, you should use the rectilinear brackets that I can't use here.

2) "emergency" at end of graph 5 of the letter should be in quotes, not italicized.

3) Use "euthanize" instead of "euthanasia" in graph 6.

Otherwise, I'm sorry for your problems with Sirius, and I hope his medical travails are as painless as possible.
